    Hi, im new here and im hoping you all can help me. I have a beautiful 7yr old Black Labrador, Bella, and the vet has just told us she has Laryngeal Paralysis. She's gagging and retching so much. I was wondering if anyone here has had experience with this. It is so heart breaking to watch her.

    I can imagine that is horrible to watch. I have no experience to help you with.
    What is the available treatment for her?

    Our first Lab. Ginger, was diagnosed with Laryngeal Paralysis at 14. We had the surgery done and she lived to 16, with no issues from the surgery, other than she could not bark. FWIW she became diabetic at 12 and was well controlled on insulin. The LP surgery was very easy and she recovered quickly, especially considering her age.

    Check the LP thread in Senior Labs also.
